Alan Hatherly & Simon Andreassen Join Cannondale Factory Racing for 2021

2020 proved to be a memorable season for the riders of Cannondale Factory Racing – including the two
new faces on the squad. World #1 Henrique Avancini and veteran teammate Manuel Fumic are joined
by former junior XC and CX World Champion Simon Andreassen of Denmark and former U23 and ebike
World Champion Alan Hatherly of South Africa. Both riders achieved breakout results last season with
Simon winning his first Elite XCO World Cup and Alan landing his first Elite XCO World Cup podium. After
two weeks together for a small team camp, the groundwork has been laid, the normal CFR shenanigans
had, and the bonds forged for 2021. Bring on the races.

Alan Hatherly: “This is really a dream come true to be wearing the Cannondale colors for the upcoming season and beyond. Excitement levels are high for this new journey alongside powerhouse teammates! I can’t wait for the season to commence and to get racing on the new machine with some big goals in place for the
2021 season. I’m confident that I’m going to level up and learn in this space which is also really exciting.”

 

Simon Andreassen: “It’s with such excitement and honor that I am joining Cannondale Factory Racing. One of those scenarios where reality beats imagination. It’s a complete game changer for me – especially after being on the first team camp and seeing how professionally the team works and how much fun we have
together.”

The newly formed team spent two weeks together for a small team camp to prepare for the 2021 season, where the focus will be on the UCI MTB XC World Cup, UCI World Championships, the Olympic games in Tokyo and the ABSA Cape Epic in October.
